Sector Alarm awarded with Red Dot

Red Dot Award 2022: Product Design

Together with Sector Alarm, EGGS has been honoured with yet another Red Dot Award for the design of a new generation of home security products.

A cohesive product identity that builds trust and a feeling of safety

Sector Alarm is one of Europe’s top providers of home security. They have improved and renewed the functionality of their product suite, focusing on providing a holistic and stress free experience of the user. The cohesive visual identity across both the physical and digital products mirror Sector Alarm’s focus on creating a feeling of safety for the user.

The product suite uses lights, sounds and shapes to communicate status and control options, which minimized experienced stress in an arming or disarming situation. As an example, to avoid accidental arming, the arming function in the app uses a slider instead of buttons, and the keypad requires a ‘long press’.

"The design of this intelligent alarm system focuses on immediately comprehensible communication, implemented in an aesthetic and easy-to-remember-way on the intuitively usable display and interactive components."
Red Dot Jury
To facilitate the understanding of the system, the remote control, app and control panel use the same symbols. An indent in the keypad indicates where the key tag fits to disarm or arm the system. Both app and control panel are designed to provide crucial information at a glance, hiding information that is not currently useful. The physical products have a clean design to blend with the interior and are easy to mount. Remote and key tag use a contrasting soft material with a tactile pattern as an extension of the logo, to add a sensory impression of the brand.

Result of close collaboration

EGGS, in collaboration with DKA and Sector Alarm, created a product family that looks great, is intuitive to use and highlight the importance of the costumers feeling of well-being and security.

”We are really proud of our next generation of safety products. Combining our experience with our partners’ in design and UX we made a technical product nice looking, stress free and easy to use.”
Mattias Hultman, Business Development Director, Sector Alarm
